TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—-As wo are second or third in gold production our claim is surely as good as that of Western Australia, which has just been granted the privilege. Melbourne and Sydney have theirs already. The advantages to the producers of gold are too apparent to necessitate amplification. The bimetallists, too, • may secure coinage of silver, which, of course, would be imported ; the exchange thui made causing a boom in our exportation of oats, with other farming produce. We may be allowed to coin a New Zealand dollar also. This would supply currency for the comiDg trade between ourselves and the East—Japan and China.—l am. etc., Jtf. Dunedin, October 25
